The North Cape is probably the most exciting destination for every biker in Europe. On the journey through the three Nordic countries Norway, Sweden and Finland you will experience a breathtaking variety of landscapes and lots of highlights. Particularly noteworthy are the Dalarna region, a cultural tradition in Sweden, and Lapland, which covers three countries at once. Here you inevitably come into contact with the Scandinavian natives, the seeds. Along the Norwegian coasts you will experience Lofoten and many, many (really many) fjords, as well as the Atlantic Road, Trollstigen and the world famous Geirangerfjord.

This trip is organized as a self-ride group trip. This means that there is no tour guide on the tour, but all hotels and some important ferry crossings are pre-booked. The route is planned by us and the participants receive a detailed description of the trip, road maps and our route recommendation as GPX and GDB file for their own GPS to upload. Those who like to ride alone, those who prefer to ride together with others join forces with other participants and then experience one or the other day or the whole tour together with them. Or one only sees each other in the evening at the bar for one or the other nightcap.

Our exclusive travel program

Day 1: Arrival Oslo (Norway)

After you have arrived safely in Oslo, you will pick up your motorcycle near the hotel in the afternoon. The rest of the day you have time to prepare yourself and your bike for the tour, explore the city on your own and meet other participants of the self-guided group tour.

Day 2: Oslo - Falun

465 km

The border region between Norway and Sweden is rich in wooded sections, small and partly winding roads lead into Sweden in the province of Dalarna. Hardly any landscape embodies the Swedish idyll any more: traditional red houses on the shore are not uncommon here. The historic copper town of Falun in particular is known beyond the borders of Sweden. She coined the name Falaunrot, which has adorned the town's wooden houses since the 16th century.

Day 3: Falun - Sundsvall

295 km

Through the Hälsingland region, which is known for folk dancing in Sweden, you will travel up to Sundsvall, the town between two mountains, near the Baltic Sea. The hostel for the night is located in an old wood and sawmill town.

Day 4: Sundsvall - Skellefteå

400 km

The journey takes you further along the rocky coast of the Baltic Sea, which the Swedes call "Höga Kusten". Umeå, the second largest city in Sweden, was built at the mouth of a river. With wide streets and many trees it is also called the "city of birches". The day's destination is Skellefteå, one of Sweden's youngest cities, founded in 1845.

Day 5: Skellefteå - Rovaniemi

375 km

Following the Gulf of Bothnia you cross the Finnish border at the Tornefluss in Haparanda/Tornio. Rovaniemi is the capital of Finnish Lapland. A very successful arctic museum, a beautiful orthodox church and many public buildings from the hand of the Finnish star architect Alvor Alto can be admired here. You spend the night at the Arctic Circle, in Rovaniemi.

Day 6: Rovaniemi - Inari

330 km

Lapland's vast landscape with extensive bogs, forests and lakes is impressive. Extensive national parks are located here. The Sami part of Lapland begins behind the town of Sodankylä. Attention: Here reindeer may come towards you on the road! Your destination is the place Inari further to the northwest. The museum and event centre "Siida" in Inari is a good starting point for getting to know and understand Sami life.

Day 7: Inari - Honningsvåg

370 km

You will notice that Lapland is very sparsely populated when you ride the route to Karasjok in Norway. Here you meet the mighty valley of the Tana River. The Norwegian Sami have their modern parliament here, which is also open to the public. In Lakselv on the wide Porsangerfjord you will meet the North Sea for the first time. On the western shore you pass the national park in Stabbursdalen and head for your destination for the day and overnight stay in Honningsvåg, which is situated directly in front of the North Cape.

Day 8: North Cape and surroundings

75 km

The almost 35 km to the North Cape Rock can be managed quickly. North Cape has been a popular tourist destination for about 200 years. The so-called North Cape Hall, an adventure centre, has been carved into the rock above the North Sea. A second destination on the way back to Honningsvåg is Skarsvåg: allegedly the northernmost fishing village in the world, Skarsvåg is home to around 60 people.

Day 9: Honningsvåg - Sørkjosen

375 km

You're moving south again. The route leads over the mountains from Sennalandet to Alta and on to Sørkjosen by the Reisafjord, the end point of the day's stage.

Day 10: Sørkjosen - Harstad

290 km

From Olderdalen you take the ferry across the Lyngenfjord to Lyngseidet (approx. 40 min). The Lyngen Fjord goes deep inland and gives you an impressive sight with its high steep mountains on the shore of the fjord. Harstad in South Troms is the daily destination.

Day 11: Harstad - Fauske

370 km

The journey to Svolvær, the capital of Lofoten, takes you across an island kingdom that lets you experience another facet of the Nordic landscape. A ferry ride from Svolvær to Skutvik (approx. 1 h 55 min) with beautiful views of the surrounding islands, brings you back to the mainland.

Day 12: Fauske - Sandnessjøen

285 - 370 km

You cross the Arctic Circle again and can choose between two routes: Either the more comfortable variant through the hinterland with 285 km and about 4.5 hours riding time or the more adventurous and eventful variant along the coast with many fjords and three ferry trips (not included in the price) with 370 km and about 8 hours total travel time.

Day 13: Sandnessjøen - Trondheim

455 km

One of the longest and also most impressive days of the tour. You sail along the North Sea and after three ferry crossings (included in the price) turn inland. Passing some inland lakes and fjords you finally reach the old capital Trondheim. A walk to the magnificent cathedral through the alleys of the over 1,000 year old city is almost a must.

Day 14: Trondheim - Molde

225 - 285 km

The ride takes you again along some fjords (FerryHalsa - Kanestraum, approx. 20 min, tickets to be bought on site) to the Atlantic Road (Toll for motorcycles 2019 NOK 68 ~ EUR 7). In bad weather we recommend the shorter route without the Atlantic road. The daily destination Molde is located on the north side of the wide Romsdalsfjord.

Day 15: Molde - Førde

335 km

Perhaps the most beautiful day of the journey is approaching. The highlights: great serpentines to Trollstigen with the 320 m high waterfall Stigfossen, the famous serpentines at the Geiranger Fjord and an approx. 1 hour ferry ride through the most famous fjord in the world from Geiranger to Hellesylt (included). Other ferry crossings: Sølsnes - Åfarnes, 15 min; Linge - Eidsdal, 10 min; Tickets for both ferries can be bought on site.

Day 16: Førde - Geilo

300km

The day's destination is Geilo in southern Norway, which is known for its ski areas and mountain trails. The way there leads along some fjords and gives you the last two ferry crossings of the tour. The tickets can be purchased on site.

Day 17: Geilo - Oslo

220 km

The last day of riding in Norway brings you back to Oslo. After your arrival in the afternoon, you return your motorcycle near the hotel and enjoy the last evening of the trip in the Norwegian capital.

Day 18: Journey home

In the morning transfer to the airport and return home with many beautiful memories in your luggage. End of the journey.
